Three Chicago Designers Making Non-Binary Fashion
Every year, the School of the Art Institute Chicago rolls out a fresh, new lineup of promising fashion talent. These graduates represent both the superficial and sociopolitical future of design, informed by what newcomers find important and therefore implement in their own practice. SAIC students this spring were particularly attuned to gender, investigating how clothing can help dismantle the binary and assert more inclusive, liberated style. Below, meet three breakout designers from SAIC's graduating class, who're each paving the way for non-binary fashion.

Known for purveying a joyous, exaggerated attitude through her whimsical designs, Natalie Castro's senior collection recalls the most carefree time in every person's life: childhood. "My concept is inspired by the nature of children," Castro says. "Children have unique traits that are unmarred by society's conventions. They are joyful, uninhibited, playful and unassuming."

Titled No Worries, No Rules, Castro's childlike debut exists outside boring learned biases, which we've developed as socialized adults. "Children live by no rules," she says. "A skirt can be [a] jacket, hat or purse to a child. These attributes are too often lost once we start growing up."

Castro's collection captures the spirit of someone wanting to keep their childhood self close, featuring an outrageous color palette, bulbous shapes that resemble kindergarten toys and activewear-inspired silhouettes. "My clothes are for people who are nonconformist, genuine, confident and carefree," Castro says, ushering in an ageless, genderless perspective on fashion.

Born and raised in Shanghai, Oscar Chen questions everything through fashion, specifically analyzing where western culture collides and, at times, aligns with Chinese communist ideologies. His senior collection, titled No Homo, is aptly charged with social commentary, pulling inspiration from dramatic LGBTQ provocateurs, such as Leigh Bowery, and juxtaposing them against traditional masculinity.

Vintage fanatic Rose Jackson has never been married but owns 35 wedding dresses
Most women who haven't been married don't have a wedding dress hanging in their wardrobe - but Rose Jackson has more than 35 of them.

A passionate collector of all kinds of vintage clothing, Jackson says she started collecting wedding pieces a decade ago.

"I have a garage full of vintage clothing and accessories ranging from Victorian to 1980s that I have collected over the past 20 years both in New Zealand and overseas - the wedding dresses are one part of my collection.

"I've dug up vintage wedding dresses in op shops in Napier, the Avondale markets, I got an amazing matching 1940s dress and bolero for half price on K' Rd one day.

"Part of the process of staging the exhibition (opening May 14 at Auckland's historic Highwic House) has been me trying to explain to myself that just because I own 35-plus wedding dresses and I've never been engaged let alone married, it doesn't make me some deranged marriage-obsessed crazy lady.

"I take some comfort in the fact that the wedding dresses are one of the smaller collections I have!"

Jackson says her love for vintage clothing and textiles is part genetic, part environmental.

"I come from a long line of crafty women. My grandmother owned the local haberdashery store in Whangarei for years, one of my aunties was a school home economics sewing teacher and my mother used to make some of my clothes and bits and pieces to sell at the Avondale markets when I was little to bring in extra money. I started sewing by hand when I was young and still have a tin full of dolls clothes and handmade mini hangers that I treasure."

The ethical and environmental side of things came later, living in the UK.

Bright Colors & Playful Patterns Ruled at This Destination Wedding in Nicaragua
Cammye McVay and Jacob Everhart grew up in the same small town in New Mexico, but since they were a year apart in school and had different interests, the pair didn’t really get to know each other until Cammye’s first summer home after college. “We hung out a couple of times and truly thought it would be a summer fling, but that did not end up being the case,” she remembers. The pair dated for two weeks—that’s it!—before Cammye moved to Denver, beginning a long-distance relationship that would go on for the next two years. Then, in September 2014, Jacob made the move to Colorado and popped the question in the couple’s favorite park over champagne while watching the sunset. “I’m a wedding planner, so he asked me, ‘How many weddings are you planning this year?’ and I said, “I don’t know, maybe 15?’ and then he pulled out the ring and said, ‘Want to plan one more?’” she says. Naturally, the answer was yes.

Although the pair calls Denver home, they knew they wanted a destination wedding where they could surprise their guests with an unlikely locale, one that was somewhat off the beaten path. “We imagined an ocean backdrop, but knew we wanted it to be more formal than having ‘our toes in the sand,’” Cammye says. The answer was Tola, Nicaragua, where the bride’s family owns a vacation home. They chose Casa Los Perros, a private home overlooking the water, for their ceremony and the Inn at Rancho Santana, for their colorful reception.

This Colorado twosome worked with Denver’s Wordshop Paperie to design and purchase their Bella Figura invitations. Cammye and Jacob chose a formal style for the main invite but let their personalities shine on the information and response cards.

Since guests were all traveling for the destination wedding, the couple planned a weekend full of fun that started off with a welcome bonfire and s’mores party on the beach, and then each of the couple’s 70 guests joined them for their oceanfront rehearsal dinner. As a wedding planner, Cammye is privy to some of the coolest new ideas in the business, and when she saw these striped linens at La Tavola Fine Linen rental months before she was engaged, she knew she was in love. “I knew I had to find a bride who would use them, and then it turned out to be me!” she says.
